NIST Draft Practice Guide: Securing Electronic Health Records on Mobile Devices

Data Breach

The National Institute for Standards and Technology issued a “draft” version of a Cybersecurity Practice Guide aimed at doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers.

The 82-page Guide discusses how medical providers access patient data remotely and that “the use of mobile devices to store, access and transmit electronic health care records is outpacing the privacy and security protections on those devices.”  In short, health care is a rich target for hackers.

The Guide provides a set of standards for securely accessing patient data.  As a bit of warning, this Guide is packed with a number of tables and complex figures.

This is certainly more of an IT document than something that a doctor might pick up and read.

You can access the Guide here.
